After a comment by River, I tried, unsuccessfully, to make some doll boots using a bear foot pattern, like the ones that Racer had on for a while. Then I thought I would try to write a doll sock pattern. I could do the rib, the leg, and would have been able to do the foot and the toe, but the heel turn was making me very confused. It is like a magical thing happens when you do the heel turn, and I could not work out that magic for myself. Luckily there was someone who had, so I used her pattern, but changed the toe to make it more like a real sock. The pattern I used was on Beep Beep blog here. When reaching the end of the foot, this is how I do the toe:
Round 1) k3, sl sl knit, k7, k2tog
Round 2) k4, sl sl knit, k4, k2tog
Round 3) k4, sl sl knit, k2, k2tog
Finish with Kitchener stitch on the two groups of four stitches. Here is a great guide to Kitchener stitch on Purl Solo.
So, now all four girlettes have their socks, plus the glamorous pink haired girl on the settee, I am going to make some to send to River and other girlettes I know! It will take me a little while but they will be on their way sometime in the next month.
Here they all are in their new socks!

A royal wedding photographer called Jo Short, and his daughter Juno, created a Sylvanian family wedding and he took amazing photos of it. They were on BBC Breakfast the other day and it made me smile so I thought I would share it. It is only a link as I am probably not allowed to use the photos but it is worth a look! He said on the news, that his daughter told him about her plans for the wedding, and he asked if he could take pictures. She said that unfortunately her brother was going to do that. So he said he hijacked it with the promise of various Sylvanian wedding goods such as a marquee, and took over. They were very funny!

Sandi Hester videos and she inspired me. I watch lots of YouTube videos at the moment. I don't know why I didn't before! IT always recommends other channels and she was one of the recommendations-a good one!
